>> i want to thank you very much for this acknowledgment and the commission and i want to say briefly i think this is really a fine example of partnership which i know is a often used word in the city now, but it really is a true partnership between the government, the rec and park department and i particularly want to commend the area manager steve, who has been completely supportive of the friends of boeddeker park since he has been our area manager he's attended almost every meeting, and it's just been wonderful to work with him and other members of the staff, the rec staff, and the gardening staff, and also it's a partnership of course with the community. the friends of
10:25pm
boeddeker park started out of a nonprofit. that's the other part of the triangle. i was a staff member with the --l now it's called the parks alliance but the neighborhood parks council and that's where i started the friends of boeddeker park and the san francisco parks trust was our fiscal agent so we work with both of those nonprofits and of course now they are merged so we had a wonderful relationship with the rec and parks department and the nonprofit and the community, the friends of boeddeker park is very well accepted i think and respected within the tenderloin community. i try to attend some of the meetings there in the neighborhood, and we've had great attendance at our meetings over the years and the community is extremely excited about the new park. we are very involved in the design of the park through the community meetings and we look forward to the
